Thy Kingdom Come Day 1

Description:
Day 1: Jesus
God so loved...
Reading:
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who
believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. Indeed, God did not
send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world
might be saved through him.
John 3.16-17
Reflection:
John 3.16 is one of the best known verses in
the Bible because it emphasises God’s love
for everyone. Jesus didn’t just love those
who are easy to love, He loved the people
who hated Him, who despised Him; He
loved the people that others looked down
on. He didn’t just love some people – He
loved the whole world.
This speaks about the action that God took
to show His love towards us – it shows us
how love is an active word. God loved us so
much that He chose to send His beloved
child for us. Not because of anything that
we did, not because we deserved it; but
because He’s a loving God. God’s love is
selfless and sacrificial and shows us what we
are worth to Him. If God can love anyone,
the least we can do is to do the same.
Prayer:
Loving God, thank You that You gave Your
Son Jesus for me, and for all people. Help
me accept the love that You showed me in
sending Your Son. I pray for my five friends.
Please open their hearts to Your love. And
teach me to love more truly.
Amen
Action:
Ask yourself: is there anyone that comes
to mind who God may be bringing to your
attention?
